Canadian company looks to build on wild success of 'Mass Effect' with sequel

Casey Hudson had the weight of an entire universe on his shoulders when he started his work.

Tasked with developing the sequel to the hit role-playing video game "Mass Effect," Hudson and his Canadian-based design team knew they faced a tall order. How to improve on the original by creating a story that is deeper and gameplay that is richer?

What's more, how to avoid a Part 2 letdown? (Culture, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect Galaxy, Mass Effect Pinnacle Station, Mass Effect: Bring Down the Sky, PC, Xbox 360)

I had no fears
I knew they would deliver. I actually enjoyed the first and was looking forward to the rest of the trilogy. 360 had a really good first month with this console exclusive and the multiplats. One down, eleven to go.

With SC out of the way, I think PS3 could take next month. Good fight ahead.

Not exactly a 'Canadian' company anymore... sellouts. :P

Did they pack up and move out of Edmunton suddenly? Did they emigrate somewhere?

Surely you can't be talking about the fact that they are a subsidiary of a US publisher. Because that would be as silly as saying Eidos are now Japanese after their acquisition by SE.

Well the group's location itself is Canadian but the company isn't. It's much the same as Tim Horton's. They advertise the snot out of Tim Horton's as being 'Canadian' but they're owned by a US company now.

tim hortons is a standalone canadian company.
They bought themselves back from wendy's.

They pretty much pulled a bungie. Technically bioware could do the same thing.

@Leather: Well, I guess.

I mean it's not such a big deal to me since a lot of our great "American" products come from elsewhere. As long as BioWare guys are making the games, I'll give credit to the devs and not some publisher.

Edit: Boo. Forgot to hit the reply.
